在距今148年前的上海，诞生了中国第一辆自行车。在之后几十年的时间里，线条简洁、价格低廉却又气质优雅的单车成为了上海最“扎台型”的出行方式。虽然自行车的鼎盛年代与我们阔别已久，但这一年多来，它在城市中构筑的新风景线又夺回了我们的焦点。148 years ago, Shanghai gave birth to China’s the first bicycle. In the following decades, the simple, cost-efficient yet elegantly designed bicycles became the most “trendy” means of transportation around the city. Long gone is the golden age of bicycles... until now. In the past year, bicycles have reclaimed the urban scenery.
Bicycles are not merely a means of transportation; they also carry with them a unique culture and lifestyle. For instance, in movie Beijing Bicycle, sharing a bicycle triggers a youth romance; in Comrades, a love story of innocence is told on the backseat. For the generations who have experienced the golden age of bicycles, these two-wheelers are deeply ingrained into their nostalgia.
